NEW YORK, NY -- Picture this. Your daughter has reached the age in which she is listening more to music and likes her own artists. Who wouldn't want their daughter to like Taylor Swift. She sees Taylor Swift on the cover of Rolling Stone and very much wants the magazine. So you let her get that issue. Before you even start the car you hear from the back seat "Mom, look at this!" You turn to see the advertisement on the second page of Rolling Stone. Pornography!
With the crease in the magazine the girl's shorts are hard to see so she looks totally nude, as she lay on two men, one tongue kissing her - the other man she is laying on has his hand going down her shorts while her naked chest is in front of his face. There is a third man laying next to them all holding the top of his jeans open. This is what, 3 guys 1 girl sex to sell jeans? I guess Calvin Klein wanted to see how far they can take it and I guess they can take it pretty far.
I am a very open minded woman and love the artistic way Calvin Klein ads show beauty and wonderful photography. Some of it is a bit racy and that is fine. However this to me has crossed the line. I will never buy from this company again and will encourage others to boycott them as well. What else can I do. When two women in my salon saw this one teared up and the other was enraged. It is not only me that views this as unacceptable. Calvin Klein you should be ashamed of yourselves.
I am a 28 year old male. I am appalled at your new ads. I don't even have kids, but I can't imagine my nieces seeing one of these ads! You're selling clothes, yet for some reason you think that everyone is going to respond well to an ad that obviously is trying to push the lines of morality. I can't even begin to think of how offended I would be if I were religious! POOR TASTE!!! P.S. It is sad to me that I will have to get rid of so much of my wardrobe, but I simply can't support a company that I think is promoting such a disgusting immoral message to the public!
I had the most unfortunate luck to view one of your ads. I am firmly committed to never purchase any product with the Calvin Klein label ever again. You have become utterly depraved. How dare you show 3 young men and a woman in such a composition. I am asking you what will you do next to sell some denim clothes. On the road to hell will you next include younger children, etc. There really is obviously no bottom to your judgment. No wonder so many of our teens are depressed. Good luck. You need it. The road to hell is wide and you are on it.
Bought a few items for my wife and this shirt was of extremely poor quality. Returned with their free prepaid return label. Was expecting my refund of $14 and instead got less than $7 returned. Nowhere on the paperwork for the return does it state that they are going to charge me for shipping back. Very unhappy, I could have shipped it back for half of what they are charging me. Contacted customer service and was told sorry but too bad. I think it is funny that in this economic times that any company would not strive at 100% satisfaction to keep a customer. If they won't satisfy me then they will lose me forever as a customer and I will have no choice but to contest with my credit card.
NELLIS AFB, NEVADA -- This is just a warning to those of you who love Calvin Klein's new fragrance, Euphoria. I received a large bottle as a gift from my Husband, with the most lovely atomizer top! It smells divine, but with my large collection of Parfum I seldom wear one habitually. Well, after only having used my Euphoria maybe ten times total over a period of about nine months, I've noticed the bottle is literally empty!
I did note the bottle changing color from purple to clear, however, I thought it was the coloring agent simply reacting to sitting in a dark medicine cabinet for so long! Nope. In fact, the clearing I was noticing was the evaporating of contents. I don't dare ask my Husband, an active duty enlisted military man, how much of his salary he spent on that gift knowing now nobody will return it since it has been so long! What a shame to see it evaporate before my eyes.
I tried to contact Calvin Klein directly, only to find their website lacks a customer service outlet. Consumers be forewarned! You will literally see (and smell) your money go up in smoke. Too bad Calvin Klein doesn't acknowledge this flaw and offer to replace people's bottles with the new version with spray tops. I would love that!
MINE HILL, NEW JERSEY -- I bought a reversible down coat made by CK from MACY's for my mom's birthday last year. This year I washed it following the instructions very carefully and am very disappointed with the results. There are tan stains all over the white side of the coat that were not there when it went into the wash! I have several down jackets from other companies and this has never happened before. I would appreciate a response from the company as MACY's has no idea what to do and will not exchange it - none others left and I don't have a receipt (but I do have the credit card statement).
At first I thought maybe I was crazy - I returned the evaporating bottle of Euphoria perfume. I'm sure the sales clerk thought I was nuts - just thought maybe I had a bad bottle. But I received a new bottle and it is also evaporating. I love the perfume but can't pay a nice price to watch it evaporate. This is bizarre but very TRUE!
Purchased a pack of three black pair of socks at Century XXI, in New York. Next day I used them. By night I took a flight back to Miami. When I took off my shoes on the plane the socks were already broken!!! Since they are not cheap and only last for a few hours, should be the most expensive socks in the whole world. I never thought such a famous brand could make something this bad, with such a poor quality!!!! Unbelievable. I still have two pairs.
